A collection of poems written by a survivor of child sezual abuse and rape. This collection of poetry reveals the pain and suffering that lay hidden in suppression for many years. The poems describe early childhood memories that come in the form of flashbacks and are at times quite disturbing. They also describe the feelings released during the healing process. The final poems portray emotions felt upon reflection of the past and the journey taken in order to start healing from the painful memories. Much of the poetry focuses on the natural environment like birds, roses and other flowers, and highlights self-discovery and self-healing. The poetry reveals the lessons and human connections found in nature.
